Kathrine “Moose” Warren began her athletic career as a swimmer, training at the prestigious Peddie High School renowned for its exemplary swim program. While at Peddie, Moose discovered the sport of triathlon and immediately excelled. Her personality and work ethic has made her the captain or leader of nearly every triathlon team she has been a part of. Her race results speak for themselves. She is the reigning ITU Age-Group World Champion (W18-24, Budapest 2010) and has numerous top 10 finishes at USAT Collegiate Nationals to her credit.
Currently a rising senior at University of California Santa Barbara, she will focus on USAT Age-Group Nationals and then on the 2011 USAT Collegiate National Championship. All who know Moose are confident she will post ever more impressive results as she continues to mature and develop as an athlete. A truly gifted yet humble individual, she knows that triathlon is her calling in life: in her own words, “I was meant to do this.”
